For the two or three of you who asked if we would do this. . .
Bruce has taken over the podcast, renamed it "The GodCenteredDad Podcast" and put me on the hot seat. Asking questions you posted on Instagram and Facebook, such as:
- How did you get started with GodCenteredMom? What are your top 3 dreams or aspirations?-@lepsalm139
- How do you find time to focus on your kiddos, your marriage and yourself without going insane? -@meganaboyer
- Will you ever write a book? -@jennawalczak
- You mention your background in speech pathology. Can you talk about your decision to stay home? -@memswim
- When (and how often) do you shower and get ready? -@jenniferhughes627
- From another mom of 4 boys. . .Do you ever feel alone in your own home? -@karahhare
I also share some turning point stories. Yes, I cry. But it's the overwhelming joy kinda tears. Beyond listening to my story, I hope you are encouraged to grow in your intimacy with Jesus. Which will reap benefits for generations to come.
Okay, okay. . .without further ado (cuz I gotta order some Christmas cards, stat) . . .
